it personally, and as a matter of policy and law. embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. to deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons, solely on the basis of who they are, and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own god-given potential. >> one of the things that she said in this video that gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights, which is an echo of her famous declaration at the international women's conference in beijing back in '95. where she really stirred the fires in international diplomacy as first lady by declaring women's rights human rights. >> and that was controversial back then. that was seen as a sort of revolutionary statement, the state department was nervous that she said that. they didn't really want that to happen. i think we will be looking back ten, 20 years on the notion that gay rights are human rights and think, well, duh, the same way we think about women's rights now. >> a real generational change certainly in the republican party as we w
. you will not mean to. the state has interest in defending the law. are startingts interest to the state. the concern is about how society and the institution of marriage will be damaged by this radical definition. >> you agree that moral disapproval as off the table? we are not going to criminalize a homosexual activity. we cannot do that. we disapprove of its. we are not going to allow same- sex couples to call themselves married because we disapprove. >> moral disapproval has nothing bases for these defending traditional marriage. are there some voters who may have boded because of proposition 08 because of moral disapproval? it goes both ways. of course people will have a mixed motives. think the states in the house report and on the floor are off the table? not consider them? of course a lot of this will tie into which standard of review the court and adopting. when you have plenty of statements in the congressional record discussing the importance of uniform eligibility it is weird cherry picking to say we will give decisive wait to these one or two or three statements
, and control of this new gop treasure trove of data. >> this is where the campaign laws play a very important part. an outside group like american cross roads can't coordinate with a candidate so it doesn't make sense for a data project where you can give data out. it doesn't make sense. the rnc has it right. it needs to be with the rnc. they're talking about sourcing with it other group like the guy from heritage but i think it has to be run from the party. i think that has more to do with campaign laws than maybe that person who was quoted thinks. >> one of the most interesting things i thought to come out of this report, an official endorsement of immigration reform. at least it says in part, we are not a policy committee but among the steps republicans take in the hispanic community and beyond, we must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. if we do not, our party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. is this another one where they will be butting heads with some of their own rank and file? >> not if the rank and file read the totality of that d
's proposition eight. let's start with doma. it's the federal law that defines marriage as a union between and a man and a woman. it keeps gays from get iting th same rights. president clinton signed doma into law in 1996. he now says it should be struck down. avery freedman from cleveland, good to e see you. >> hi, fredricka. >> and richard herman, good to see you as well. avery, you first on this. two cases before the supreme court. let's begin with doma. how much is at stake here? >> i think this is one of the great cases that the the supreme court will hear this term. that and prop eight. but doma which was compromised legislation and signed by bill clinton back in 1996 has always been questionable in terms of constitutionality. and two federal appeals courts have held that that law that restricts personnel rights that is by the federal government violates the constitution. it violates the equal protection law. in terms of the significance of it, it's really march madness. this is so important and so exciting because you have the solicitor general arguing against the constitutionality

in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other hand, it would really upset their base on gay marriage, even as 58% of americans accept gay marriage, the base of the republican party is in this very different place. so they don't know how to make that movement without upsetting their base, which is why you saw after that autopsy, which did make some comments about young people needing to see that the republican party was more open on issues of equality for the lgbt commu

that put together the healthcare law and stood by politicians when they said stupid stuff like this. >> we have to pass the bill, so that you can find out what is in it. >> neil: well, never mind the lawyers actually knew what was in it. they wrote it. they just didn't feel telling us all the stuff that was in it. push coverage for preexisting conditions or keeping older kids on your policy. gloss over the bad stuff like thousands of part-time workers probably, well, losing the policies, collateral damage. i.e.d. now, top obama architect of that law admitting the obvious, the healthcare law is messy. you think? nothing he neglected to point out a few years ago when the warning could have come in handy. too late. we're knee-deep now and it's costing us through the nose. premiums going up much more than they said. doctors dropping out of their professions, much more than they feared. fine mess, i'm sure, in the fine print. where i'm equally sure there was a blanket policy for policy that would provide no blanket no, warmth, no protection, guarantee you could keep your doctor or plan. no plan
at the supreme court. >> it's being asked to decide there whether or not congress can pass a law that treats same-sex couples who are already married under the laws of their state different from opposite section sex couples. >> reporter: defenders of the law say congress has as much right as the states to make its own definition of marriage. >> doma is important because congress said it was important. i mean we sent our elected representatives to washington, d.c. and they chose to say that marriage is one man and one woman for purposes of federal law. >> reporter: conservatives say the founding fathers never contemplated gay marriage. >> because it's clearly not what anyone understood as marriage at the time of the framing of the constitution. >> reporter: still, same-sex families pay taxes and don't get the same benefits and the issue with doma really gets complicated if they have children who are also excluded from benefits. >> when we have kids i would like them to be born in a post-doma united states. >> still, california is one of only a handful of states that gives most of the benefits of m
ground in the years to come that real money can be put behind a gun law reform message, and it can be a winning message. the fact of the matter is, i watchedway lapierre call mayor bloomberg nutty this morning. well, wayne lapierre is about as nutty as a bag of trail mix when it comes down to issues like this. the end of the day, you're having this kind of gun violence, it happened on a day after day basis, americans want real change. they want universal background checks. you know, they do want, you know, limits on high capacity magazines. they do want a ban on assault weapons that can fire multiple, multiple rounds without reload. they do want those things. you won't see it in this legislation, but what mayor bloomberg and other mayors around the nation are doing will be a kick in the right direction. >> a lot of opposition from republicans and a number of democrats as well against the assault weapons ban specifically mayor bloomberg on "meet the press" earlier. pretty much saying that it probably won't pass. take ap listen. >> we are going to have a vote for sure on assault weap

borrow the money and pay your check because your entitled to it as a matter of law, at a certainagers you qualify. -- at a certain age, you qualify. if your income is below a certain level, you're entitled to the money. whether uncle sam has it or not. that's based on law. that's based on legislation that congress passed that entitles people that under certain circumstances to obtain federal money. and get it as a matter of entitlement. and so when those programs are surging at 6% a year, medicaid, the poor person's insurance program, is projected to go to -- to grow 8% a year over the next decade, 117% over the next ten years, when those programs are going at that rate and the economy is growing at 2%, you have got a problem. you don't have to go to the harvard business school to know that. you really don't have to go to harvard to know that. when i talk to the american people, they understand it fully. they expect that we are really going to have to make tough choices in this country to get the country on the right path, and they are girding themselves to support such tough choices, but
and we've tried to tackle both of those in our acquisition reform bill which is now law and which is taking some time to take hold. >> want to take advantage of my time for a minute and jump around a bit. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have b

next month. i want to sign that bill into law as soon as possible. >> what if anything can get done while congress is away? politico's marty kay, can the president make the most of these two weeks? can he do things while congress is away? >> he can probably be very effective while congress is away of they're scattered around the country and the world. he can use this time to talk about immigration, a little about gun control if he wants to. what we heard at the end of last week before recess, was that the gang of eight senators, half republican, half democratic, are pretty close on some sort of an immigration breakthrough. how that plays on the full senate remains to be seen but they are, some of them are ready to start debating this. it is not clear what happens at the house but the senate is ready to start talking immigration. >> that gang of eight starts to seem broken by party lines a little bit. every time we talk about immigration, we have to look at the details. some people are pro pathway. maybe after 13 years. some are pro pathway after the bored he is secure. some are pro
of what was lawful and what wasn't lawful and what might we been able to do. formulations committee has jurisdiction. armed services has jurisdiction. that's four committees i can name off the top of my head, mr. speaker. each of them have taken some kind of look into this. here's what happens. if you take a situation like benghazi or any major incident and you break it down into four components and you assign or the jurisdiction of each committee chair would look at this and claim jurisdiction, which they rightfully can do in this congress, they would take their component of it, study it, they might write out a report, and might be complete and it might be completely accurate. they can send that out. the unclassified portion, to the american people. that report goes out. then say that select committee on intel. then, mr. speaker, the foreign affairs committee can meet and they can call their witnesses that they choose to do so, and gather that information and perhaps write a completely objective and completely truthful report, and send it out to the public. all of that that's not class

poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know,
would be different. i think at the end of the day if we had like a law enforcement person or former law enforcement person, or someone like that as the national face of it, it would make it easier in some of the areas or some of the states you're talking about. but i don't think bloomberg -- >> gabby giffords is participating and give a different experience. they examine at it a different way and have their own group that doesn't have the funding that bloomberg has but they have a personal touch. pretty prominent law enforcement people have come forward. i get the point about the big city divide because one of the things we hear a lot from members who live in rural states and states with duplicate roots in the hunting and sportsman community and they don't see the world in the same way a big city mayor might and they have to really deal with the issue there are many gun owners in their states who say, hey, i'm a responsible person and i wouldn't do those things and don't restrict rights they believe are their own. it gets very, very personal. when you look at a mark pryor of arkansas he
-sex marriage for the first time this week. the court will consider challenges to two laws, california's proposition 8, a 2008 ballot measure, that added a marriage ban to that state's constitution, and the defense of marriage act, a '96 law, which bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage, depriving gay couples of federal benefits. the nine justices will weigh in on the constitutionality of marriage laws at a time when public opinion has dramatically shifted on the issue. 38 states, though, still ban it, either by law or constitutional amendment. here for a impressive view, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, good morning. big week. set the stage for us. >> reporter: right. well, both cases basically raise the same constitutional question. can the states or the federal government, under the constitution, discriminate against gays and lesbians but not either recognizing their marriages or permitting them to marry. the advocates of proposition 8 say yes. marriage should be the tradition should be observed, we shouldn't rush into this. and marriage s
, though. one is necessary. >> eric: they already broke the law. they have broken the law coming here. let them continue to break the law and give them the same voting right as someone has broken the law? >> greg: i said they have to get in line behind everybody else. >> eric: you say illegal immigrants who will eventually get voting rights. >> greg: if they're good people who work hard, heck yes. the victory here is for the media academic complex. maybe argument for the border, sign of victory. if you want something that mexico has, you are somehow seen as racist. meanwhile, mexico, what is your role in all of this? nobody is trying to get in to your country. yet, you criticize our immigration policy. >> andrea: what do you think of this flan of course, security first. and chuck schumer and other democrats said we agree with that. there is an issue how long they want to make them wait. getting, to go to the back of the line is a fair policy. it's time that republicans embrace it. i long said that. >> bob: first, let me say this about rand paul. he has risen in my estimation, i was critica
clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look
again to repeal the president's health care law dubbed by supporters and detractors as obama care. the latest gop senator to take a shot says he is not giving up. three years after president obama signed health care reform into law, republican opponents are still treating it like a dise disease that needs to be cured. >> obama care is hurting young people, seniors, hispanics, african-americans. >> reporter: texas gop senator ted cruz is the latest lawmaker to propose eliminating obama care. like all of the other repeal attempts, it failed. >> i intend to keep trying to repeal obama care and to fight for pro growth policies every single day. >> reporter: cruz tells cnn the law will put the economy in critical condition. >> the economy is not growing and implementing obama care now raises a very real possibility we will push this nation into a recession. i'm trying to make the case -- >> reporter: you are saying the president's health care law will cause recession. it could very well. we've had more than 35 separate votes in the congress about that and we've always upheld the afford
to push big laws, and then you are occupied with this other garbage and it makes no sense. if people are going to smoke, they are going to smoke anyway. it doesn't matter. it's like holding alcohol from kids, they are still going to be drunk. by the time they are 21 they are already drunk. >> bill: all right. we got it john. skeptical about any laws whatsoever. i think sometimes people believe the purpose of getting elected is to pass new laws. i have often thought maybe the purpose should be to get rid of some of the laws that we have. so i'm always skeptical about that. but at the same time with mayor bloomberg, it does seem that he's just on this kick right? that he is going to make everybody in new york just like him. >> yeah, exactly. >> bill: i'm perfect. i don't smoke. right? i don't drink bill gulps. >> i don't eat too much salt. >> bill: right. and i never have msg in my food so you are going to be as perfect as i am, or i'm going to die trying. i don't think this will work. >> announcer: this the "bill press show." support the drug war you must be high. cenk u
this morning's "new york times" he is in favor of changing his tough new gun law to allow ten magazines instead of seven because seven magazines are not widely available. gun owners will still only be allowed to load seven bullets at a time. that law is set to take effect april 16th. >>> you know, the heat is on. miami heat has now won 24 straight games. lebron james and company staged an incredible comeback last night, erasing a 27-point third quarter deficit to beat lebron's old team, cleveland cavaliers, 98-95. james had a triple-double, 28 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists. the heat now within nine games of the nba record for consecutive wins set by the 1971-72 los angeles lakers who won 33 in a row. what are the chances, berman, that it happens? >> you can't keep falling behind by 27 points and expect to win nine games more in a row. >> they do that on purpose is my theory. but your theory is that -- >> they've gotten so used to winning any way they want, they sort of -- >> no big deal? >> -- they play casually the first three quarters and then they turn it on. i suspect it may catch up with
, which is critical to law enforcement people. they'll tell you police on the streets or state police, our law enforcement at the federal level, illegal trafficking is a scourge. and, of course, background checks are absolutely critical because right now the law prohibits sales to convicted criminals, drug addicts, seriously mentally ill and domestic abusers but can't enforce that provision if private sales are exempted. so close that loophole. and then, of course, school safety will be in the bill as well. and the amendment on the floor will be on assault weapons. clearly the core bill will have those three first provisions and then there will be an amendment to add others. >> all right. well, senator richard blumenthal, my hat is off to you. you're a good man for staying awake and coming on the air. i tell you, i thought i don't think he's going to make it and you proved me wrong. i'm very glad for that and for your company. thank you so much. >> thank you, alex. >> in today's office politics, chris hayes gives us a preview of his yet to be name prime time show that remeres next month. i
no to expanding medicare for their poor. they're the ones who are saying yes to the voter i.d. laws they hope will keep minority voters home. the idea is softening your language on a few social issues and on immigration to lure more hispanics is not a cure for their overall policy and stylistic problems. >> no, i think what you do is do that to make the older white voter feel better about being a republican. >> right. >> we're not racist, not anti-latino, we're not anti-gay. you don't encourage actually anyone affected -- anyway, the chairman of the party, reince priebus, what republicans are calling the growth and opportunity project. focus groups describe the republican party as narrow minded, out of touch, stuffy old men and the party of the rich. take a look at priebus earlier today. >> our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. so there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> governor, if you were in a choosing side situation, would you ever pick h

that has already said that under state law that's legal. >>steve: okay. so now that some states are eyeing ways to block upcoming federal gun control laws, has president obama set the precedent? joining us now, fox news judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. >> very clever. president, precedent. >>steve: this is interesting. the president says when it comes to pot, we've got bigger fish to fry. when it comes to gun laws, what say you? >> there's a very practical reason why the president is going to back off on enforcing federal laws against the recreational use or any use, for that matter, of colorado and washington. that's because in those states it is now illegal for employees of the state -- that would be not just administrators and bureaucrats, but police -- to help the feds enforce federal law. and what most people might be surprised to know is the federal government does not have the person power and resources to enforce all federal laws on its own. it needs the assistance of state and local police as well. they don't have that in colorado and washington because marijuana is lawfu
. that law says that marriage between a man and a woman rewoo remain the legal standard in america. in 2009 president clinton recanted. he now favors gay marriage. in 2004 his wife hillary clinton also opposed gay marriage but now she, too has changed her opinion. >> i do not support gay marriage but i support civil union. >> lgbt americans are our league colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones. and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. that's why i support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. >> bill: but, what? 9 years ago she didn't. with us now to analyze alan colmes and monica crowley. this is all about evolving, i understand from colmes. evolving. we are evolving. >> everybody is evolving now. evolving is the new black, right? look, this is a very slickly produced video. it's clear she is running for president. if she weren't running for president 2016 there is no reason for her to make this. >> bill: to evolve. >> make this dramatic announcement at this point in the cycle. >> bill: do you think it'
the health care law and increase the cost of care to our seniors, throw students off of their parents' plans, cost tens of millions more americans to be uninsured and put the insurance companies back in charge of patients' care. our budget rejects that approach, and it builds on the health care law to continue reducing costs responsibleably increasing efficiencies and improving care. our budget also maintains the key principle that every other bipartisan group has maintained but that has been rejected by the house republicans. we don't think the burden of deficit reduction should be unfairly borne by the most vulnerable children and families who have already sacrificed so much. everyone in america needs to be a part of this solution, but the house republican approach would shred the safety net that has offered a hand up to millions of families across america, including my own when we needed it, and, mr. president, we reject that approach. the budget we are considering this week also makes the investments we need to keep our military strong, to protect our communities and environment and upho
new laws with 51 votes getting the necessary number might have been possible. here's another number over 50 that senator might have considered when making his legislative plans. according to the latest "abc news" "washington post" poll, 57% of adults said they would support a ban on the sale of assault weapons. only 41% said they wouldn't. that's only if you believe in democracy. as for senator feinstein she had said to have been angry when she told reporters, how many assault weapons do you need circulating. to have these mass killings is such a blight on everything that america stands for. meanwhile new gun control legislation became latte in colorado where democratic governor john hickenlooper signed three bills that will restrict sales of new ammo clips to 15 rounds. require universal background checks, and charge gun owners for the background check costs. governor hickenlooper signed those bills shortly after the death, the victim of another gun violence, a man that the governor new john clemens who heads the department of corrections. he had a wife and two daughters. here's pa
's the wrong thing for economic stability. it's the wrong kind of plan if made into law to help us grow our economy, create jobs, create wealth, get people over time and bonuses and pay raises, the kind of thing you have when the economy's growing. this budget is just the wrong medicine. i just have to say i strongly, strongly believe that it takes us in the wrong direction. what does it do at bottom? it raises taxes. it raises taxes, according to the chairman, by 1 point -- $1 trillion, $985 billion -- billion dollars. that's almost a trillion -- and we think it raises it $1.5 trillion. there is a reserve fund to make it easy to raise more taxes. i ask the chair to close that so it couldn't be used to raise taxes easily and see a decline which would continue to cause me to believe that that is an additional part. but regardless, a trillion dollars of new taxes is a huge, huge tax increase. in january of this year, the president got a $650 billion big tax increase on the rich. and so this is a huge additional tax cut. plus a trillion in tax cuts in the president's health care bill. so we ar
gun laws, but yet you still had the tragedy in connecticut. so democrats just have to seize it. they have to move the this very quickly. congress is going to be going on a two week recess, and then democrats are going to have to move this bill and i think move it quickly or it could get weaker as it goes along, and then, of course, the president's going to have to get involved and push the house to do something. jon: also worth noting in newtown where the shooting took place the application for gun permits jumped significantly in the weeks and months after the shooting. so it sounds like the senate is just maybe far left or somewhat to the left of the population op this thing they're trying -- on this thing they're trying to get passed. >> the key is going to be the background checks. if schumer can get a republican, they're going to be able to claim victory. but if they don't get the background checks, democrats were calling that the sweet spot of this gun violence movement. and it's going to be a tough spot for the gun control activists. do they support a bill that is relativ
it personally and as a matter of policy and law, embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and for all americans." >> catherine: that of course, is former secretary of state hillary clinton. she's in a video produced by the gay rights advocacy group 'human rights campaign.' her public backing comes as the supreme court prepares to tackle the issue. arguments are set to begin next week, with a ruling by late june. new tonight. too old, too white and too insular to win. that's what an internal review by the republican party found -- about itself. now major changes could be on the way for the gop. tory dunnan has more on the harsh new report. >> reporter: the republican reboot is underway. >> as it makes clear, there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak; our ground game was insufficient; we weren't inclusive >> reporter: after a tough 2012 presidential loss and a senate seat reduction, the republican national committee released findings from its "autopsy" report. reaching out to more than 50-thousand people to look back and figure ou
as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei
